Soedesco’s older style real-time Strategy game 8-Bit Armies (which is super reminiscent of classic games like Command & Conquer/WarCraft) is already making its way to the consoles next month…And I can’t wait. Today, it gets even better as the other two games in their “8-Bit RTS Series” will be coming along for the ride as well!
8-Bit Hordes, which is their take on the fantasy RTS, and 8-Bit Invaders, the science fiction RTS, will be arriving on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 digitally (while PS4 also gets a physical edition) along with 8-Bit Armies on September 21st. Best of all, the games will feature a cross-title multiplayer feature, which means you’ll be able to play against your friends no matter WHICH RTS game you have. So you can battle your Orc units against spaceships if you want, which can make for some fun engagements. You can see it in action thanks to a new trailer:
8-Bit Hordes is a fantasy themed RTS in which players can storm castles, slay dragons and raid haunted cemeteries. There are two factions to battle with: The daunting Orcs and their undead allies of the DeathSworn, or the brave elves, humans and dwarves of the Lightbringers.
8-Bit Invaders! is a sci-fi themed RTS in which the Multiverse is your battlefield. Players can fight with one of two factions, the sinister Cranioids or the military might of the Galactic Marine Corps.
Unlike any other console game, all three games in the 8-Bit RTS Series allow for cross-title Multiplayer. This means that players can combine the different factions and maps, battling with fiery dragons against flying saucers and massive tanks. The new trailer gives an impression of what it looks like when these three totally different worlds come to an annihilating clash!

I was already sold on these RTS games, but seeing as they’re now coming to consoles (my primary gaming platform), I can’t wait to get my hands on them.
